NPR's Linda Gradstein reports at least 350 Palestinians were injured in clashes that broke out in the West Bank and Gaza between Palestinian demonstrators and Israeli troops.

The clashes came as the Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak won parliament's approval to transfer three Arab villages near Jerusalem to Palestinian control.
